REFINING

Petroleum refining refers to all treatments and processing designed to extract as much oil as possible from high-value products. These processes are brought together in a refinery. CORAF manages the Pointe-Noire refinery where oil is processed to extract marketable fractions.

Oil, a mixture of different hydrocarbon products, has to undergo a series of different treatments to be used in combustion engines and in different branches of industry.
